Ice cubes are placed in warm water and the specific heat of fusion of water is determined from the mix temperature. In relation, the calculations carried out in the evaluation show which mix temperature would occur in an experiment with the same volume of water at 0 °C. The comparison of these calculations with the actually measured mix temperature shows very clearly the influence of the specific heat of fusion.
